''Kickin' It Old Skool'' demonstrates why so many writers of non-sci-fi stories reach for the TimeTravel {{Phlebotinum}}. It desperately wants to be a lighthearted romp through Generation X nostalgia but by using a ConvenientComa, winds up hitting its' head on the basic unfunniness of its' core premise. Viewers are constantly reminded that the core character missed out on 20 years of his life, bankrupting his family with medical bills in the process; this is never explored in any dramatic depth, though-hey look, remember Garbage Pail Kids!-but thorougly undermines it as a comedy.
